Virginia Traffic Violations
I defend clients in a wide range of criminal traffic offenses, including:
- Driving while intoxicated (DWI)
- Reckless driving
- Driving with a suspended/revoked operator's license
- Driving having been declared a habitual offender
- Other traffic-related offenses
The best strategy depends on the details of your case and where you are charged. Reckless driving defense can vary based on whether you were charged with reckless driving by speed (over 80 mph) or reckless driving based on an accident or an alcohol-related driving offense. I will work with you to understand your situation, explain your options and craft the best possible defense for you.
Hampton - Williamsburg - Newport News DWI Lawyer
As a former assistant commonwealth's attorney, then deputy commonwealth's attorney, I have extensive experience in DWI cases. I know how prosecutors approach these cases. I can use that experience to help you minimize the consequences you are facing. In addition to heavy fines, loss of a license and potential jail time, military members may also face the loss of their security clearance. Commercial truck drivers may lose their commercial driver's license (CDL) and be unable to work. The consequences of pleading guilty are not always clear. You need to speak to an attorney if you have been arrested for drunk driving.
In some cases, you may be entitled to a restricted driver's license even if you are convicted. I can help you negotiate the terms of that license to ensure that you are able to continue the vital day-to-day functions that require a vehicle.
